    Just noticed that Samsung now has the official upgrade and detailed instructions posted.

    clicking through the link to xp download takes to the AT&T Blackjack download. Looks like Samsung may have posted the wrong link, or that link may actually work for the i760. Not sure.

    Yep ... They're still not hitting on all cylinders ... but ... they appear to be getting closer.

    (Looks like someone is making a career out of offically posting this upgrade)

    Maybe tomorrow?

    Yep the Vista link redirects you to Blackjack wm6.0...So I called Samsung support after going through their automated voicemail system I finally reached a live person and was informed that they were having issues with the upgrade and decided to take it down... Not sure why they just didn't post a message stating the upgrade will be released soon rather than redirecting you to a BlackJack wm6.0 upgrade page... Hopefully they will fix it...

    Samsung has fixed the link and it now points to the right file for a Vista update.

    Finally ?

    Looks like they FINALLY got the links working ...

    I'm downloading the "OFFICAL" zip file now (XP) and am going to compare it to the "IN THE WILD" version.

    I suspect they will be the same, but who knows ...

    I ran a File Compare (FC) against the Samsung Official Vista file and the "in the wild" file from the mirror. They are identical.

    Thanks for doing the File Compare.

    I guess it's time. No more excuses.

    (I just hate re-installing all the apps. I have ALOT on my I760)

    So I suppose that means nothing's been fixed. Well, here goes nothing anyway.

    I've gone ahead and noted in the WM 6.1 in the Wild thread that the links on Samsung's site have been fixed so I'm going to close this thread.

    Thanks, jpinsl, for doing the file compare.
